Humanitarian Logistics Certification Programme comprises three courses: 

  • Certification in Humanitarian Logistics (CHL) which teaches the base principles of logistics and supply chain operations in the humanitarian context in order to increase the proficiency and expertise of humanitarian logisticians working at an operation level.
  • Certification in Humanitarian Supply Chain Management (CHSCM) emphasises more strategic elements of supply chain management and is aimed at senior logisticians and logistics coordinators working at the strategic level of humanitarian operations.
  • Certification in Humanitarian Medical Logistics Practices (MedLog) is like CHL and is at an operational level but is focused on the special supply chain requirements of medical items.
